This old savings bank was probably a giveaway from The Bank of California. It is a nice depiction of a prospector and a reference to the California Gold Rush. The hard working man is knelt with his pick and shovel and a gold pan that he is undoubtedly hoping will show some color. One side of the base reads; A Good Bank to Start With and the opposing side reads; A Good Bank to Grow With. It is made of a cast white metal with an antiqued bronze paint. A no-tamper coin slot is on the bottom and is part of the locked door. It is marked; Banthrico, Inc. - Chicago, U.S.A.. This bank does NOT come with a key. I believe this is from the 1950’s - 1960’s.

It measures about 6 ½” tall and the base measures about 3 3/8” by 3 7/8”. It is in very nice condition with minimal wear and no damage. As previously stated, the bank is locked and I do not have a key for it.

The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
